Thoughts of Claire Stanton about the course:
“The Tea Inspiration course was a great success and the students found it to be both rewarding and enlightening. This morning one of those students Lina informed me that she's already spread the word about Dilmah Tea with three of her chef colleagues who were all impressed with the quality and story behind the tea. We will be running the course again next year all being well around the same time for the next level 3 graduating Specialised Chefs.”
